Hi All You Sweeney's

I am Carol Sweeney Krouse. My father was Francis J. Sweeney and married Svea Anderson. My father's mother's maiden name was Margaret Dolan (Sweeney) I don't know her husband's name. My father had two brothers - Bob Sweeney, George Sweeney, and a sister Ethel Sweeney (Greene). My parents had 9 children - Shirley & Dorothy, both died in infancy - John, Robert, Francis, William, Barbara, Jane and Carol. We were all raised in Providence, Rhode Island. I believe my grandparents originated from Ireland. I do not know any of my cousins from my father' s side - would love to hear from someone.

I am trying to find my gmother's roots: father was John Miles Sweney and that is how he spelled his name in letters. He was born in 1807 somewhere in Pennsylvania, came to Illinois and then Kansas. He was on his way to Dennison, Texas, to get an inheritance in 1882 ( date of last letter) and died on the way, date and place unknown. Probably died on the road and was buried beside it. If anyone has any possible info please email me.

My name is Robin Weiss. My mother's maiden name was OMahoney . Her grandmother's maiden name was Catherine Sweeney born 1863 in Ireland most probably in Cork. I am moving to Cork in a few days and would like to see if I have any family still there. She married Dennis Mahoney which was probably changed from OMahoney when he came to the United States. He was born in 1859.

My father is Francis Joseph Sweeney born in Scotland in 1916 son of Rosemary McDonald and Myles Sweeney who died in 1917/18. Please can anyone give me any information on Myles Sweeney and in particular has anyone a photograph of my fathers, father. We are aware that Myles was born in Scotland but lost his parents at a young age. We do not know how many brothers and sisters he had, but we do know of one sister named Bridget. Any news would be greatly appreciated.
